Fighting StyleEdit

The Spear moveset is all about offense, attacking enemies with narrow, yet powerful, attacks. The Spear is great for one-on-one fights, though has very few attacks that are effective in crowds. If you find your self in a large group of people, use the Shadow Step ability to make your way out of said crowds. The Musou is decent in dealing damage to groups however, so if you find you don't have enough spirit energy to shadow sprint out of a group, using your musou is a better alternative to getting the area clear.

Fighting StyleEdit

The Naginata is good with dealing with crowds. A lot of sweeping attacks for its normal and charge attacks. Its primarily a move set that's good at keeping opponents away from you, and as of Samurai Warriors 3, great for enhancing the skills of your allies around you. That being said it isn't the strongest weapon, so players should take caution when using it. It is an effective weapon for those who take things at slow and steady paces, while providing support to their allies.
